I have to concentrate on my studies I have distraction's I am thinking about my friends (2) all the time. Their behaviour is not good they avoid me sometimes. I have to forget them completely and one of those is my roommate I feel depressed sometimes thinking too much of them. I have to concentrate and get a job I'm n my final year btech please help me out.

You have to try not to think about other's matters and focus on your studies. Because after the final year of college you will get a job individually and not with your friends. So this is your personal matter. If you still have hard time concentrating on your study, try Brahmi 3X (homeopathic medicine) once in a day before you start reading.

There may be something bothering you or stressing you. You must meet with a counselor and deal with that. With regard to concentration here are a few guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive or coconut oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

I am not taking proper sleep due to work tension so can I take sleeping pills to reduce this stress.

I am not taking proper sleep due to work tension so can I take sleeping pills to reduce this stress.
Mr. Lybrate-user, you seem to be having anxiety and stress issues. If your job is causing you stress/tension and if you can not change your job or profile, you need to introspect. Sleeping pills will help you only for a while, afterwards they will stop helping to ease your tensions. And it is likely that you will develop an addiction to them. In some years you will find yourself in a spot where the medicines do not help and you will start running after something more potent and may be illegal like drugs! the problems lies with your" coping abilities" it is important you take help of a counselor, learn to introspect from time to time and develop coping strategies!

Dear lybrate user, I think you are just anxious. You do not seem to have any problem. Please relax. Next time you have sex with your girl friend, just be in the present and enjoy the act. Do not worry about your performance and don't try to judge yourself. The more you worry, the more anxious you will be and more will be your stress to perform. So just don't worry. Give yourself more time. All the best.

Dear lybrate user, **the food but ginger is well accepted as a traditional cure for indigestion. Ginger as a food ingredient or in a strong ginger tea helps in causing stimulation of saliva, bile juices and gastric juices while all these play important roles in digestion. Drinking ginger tea is certainly much more beneficially to get rid of gas and indigestion problems than coffee and soda.

Hi, Previously I was addicted of smoking but now I smoke One cigarette in a week. So Will it be still harmful?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Yes even one will be harmful and stop it. Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive or coconut oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best recall where there are two modes of memory recall. Fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids (including sardines and salmon) and fight artery-damaging inflammation. The same is true for walnuts. Berries, especially blueberries, are loaded with anthocyanins — potent antioxidants that protect cells, including those in the brain. Blueberries may also have the power to create new pathways for connections in the brain: These connectors tend to die off with age, but in animal studies, blueberry consumption has been shown to help restore them, says Jim Joseph, Ph.D., director of the neuroscience lab at the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, Tufts University. Although many of the reports on the brain-boosting power of supplements like vitamins B, C, E, beta-carotene, and magnesium are promising, a supplement is only useful to people whose diets are lacking in that specific nutrient. If you want to power up your ability to concentrate, start with a meal of 100% fruit juice, a whole-grain bagel with salmon, and a cup of coffee. In addition to eating a well-balanced meal, experts also offer this advice: • Get a good night's sleep. • Stay hydrated. • Exercise to help sharpen thinking. Meditate to clear thinking and relax.

I'm suffering from intense depression due to a major change in my life. I'm unable to think positive and my thoughts kills me all day. I can't sleep properly, Even when I do it's all bad thoughts waking me in the middle of the night. I feel like shouting at the walls. I don't feel hungry at all, like it's the least I concern about. I feel very tired and hopeless everyday. Can't concentrate on work or studies. My patience and tolerance has become zero. I tend to shout on anyone on just a slight inconvenience. It's been a few weeks now, I thought time would help. Nothing has changed. Revenge is all I think about without considering the consequences.

Good ​Afternoon, Depressive disorder is not uncommon and affects many people in their lives. The lifetime incidence of this disorder is about 10-15 per 100 people and it is not surprising if it happens in adolescents, adults or even in elderly populations. I believe that your symptoms of depressed mood, sleep difficulties, hopeless/helpless/worthless feelings, guilt that is not usually attributable to you or others i.e. Self blame, problems at work or school affecting daily life and academic performance are all parts of the problem of depression. I would highly recommend that you consult with a psychiatrist to find out the right solution for you. Medications along with therapy is better than either of them alone. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

You need to sleep on an average 8 hours per day. If you sleep less at night you might feel sleepy during day. However even after sleeping well at night if you sleep more during day, you need to be evaluated for narcolepsy (excessive day time sleepiness) and take necessary treatment. Kindly consult a psychiatrist.

Behavioral Problems in Adolescents

MBBS, MD
General Physician, Gurgaon
Behavioral Problems in Adolescents

Upon reaching adolescence, children's bodies undergo several changes and so do their minds. It is then that their minds are most, as well as least impressionable. And the daunting question regarding the upbringing of an adolescent is how to treat their constantly changing behavior?

Here are some of the tantrums adolescents more commonly throw, and what should ideally be your approach to it:

  1. Your child seems to hate you: It is very common for a phase of emotional exclusionism to prevail between 16-17 years of age approximately. And the worst thing you could do is heighten that emotion by returning the hatred. Make sure you're firm against any extremely unacceptable behavior, but at the same time, show them that you're there for them no matter what.
  2. Electronic devices become the center of their attention: Whenever you want to have an earnest conversation with your children, their attention seems to be drawn solely to their phones and computers. They feel the need to be connected to their friends and all times. Ways to monitor that are by setting limit to the maximum hours spent on devices or making them pay their own bills, which will make them more responsible rather than splurging unnecessarily. Also, if your child is not entirely secluded from the family, it is probably best not to interfere all the time.
  3. Ignoring the curfew: Your kids often stay out later than the set limit. But it is quite possible that your curfew is unreasonable when compared to other parents' curfew. Find out what the average time limit is; it may prevent your child from bearing a grudge against you. In case they still fail to respect your curfew, make sure you spill out to them what the consequences can be, like being grounded for a week. However, in certain cases, your child may be spending time doing nothing constructive, but away from home. There may be something else going on, find out what that is.
  4. Being friends with the wrong people: Sometimes it might happen that you think some children do not have a good influence on your child, but you cannot say that directly because adolescents tend to get very defensive about their choice of friends. Unless the adolescent is doing something harmful with the friend, like using drugs, let him exercise his choice. Otherwise, don't hesitate from seeking professional help to counsel your child.
  5. Being over-dramatic: Every emotion is heightened in your child and you cannot tell them that what they are whining or being overjoyed about are trivial, because that's their prime focus then. Let them realize on their own how irrational they sound or else you may risk spoiling your relation with them.

How many acupuncture treatments does it take to relieve stress? Is this something that needs continual treatment?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
How many acupuncture treatments does it take to relieve stress? Is this something that needs continual treatment?
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body's meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi through the individual.The frequency and number of treatments differ from person to person. Some people experience dramatic relief in the first treatment. For complex or long-standing chronic conditions, one to two treatments per week for several months may be recommended. For acute problems, usually fewer visits are required, usually eight to ten visits in total. An individualized treatment plan that includes the expected number of treatments will be discussed during your initial visit.

Dear lybrate-user, your anxiety itself springs from the mind through many neurochemicals. That is why clonazepam was prescribed to you. It looks that your breathing problem, blurred feeling and inability to focus are all anxiety symptoms which are not yet relieved. Please continue clonazepam and consult the psychiatrist again to find out other medical causes of anxiety, like thyroid functioning too much, in the heart one valve has come down while pushing the blood to another chamber. If anything is found apart from your mind it will be treated. Even if it from your mind, more treatment like relaxation and other talk therapy will be added.

I lost my business last year. It gives a huge depression to me. I prefer myself pls help me.
In every career there are ups and downs. While getting into business, you must have anticipated the possibility of loss. However, nothing is permanent. Most of the successful people in the world today did not get where they are because they never failed; they failed repeatedly. It is because they did not give up. Work, business and money, although are important, are not everything in life. You have to set some goals for yourself and work on them. Treat this as a learning experience; now you know how to proceed ahead. If you are feeling low consistently, and it is interfering with your sleep or general well being; or you feel suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. You can consult me further if required.

Stress performance if plotted on a graph is a bell shaped curve some degree of stress improves your performance but if stress overshoots a point then performance declines. For reducing stress while studying 1. Make a to do list of topics before starting. 2. Prioritize the topics to be read and study accordingly 3. Take intermittent breaks of 10 min during studying 4. Listen to soothing music or talk to your dear ones 5. Do not compromise on your night sleep as it improves long term memory 6. Before beginning next day recall or rehearse the topics studied day before 7. Take healthy diet and keep yourself hydrated 8. Try to learn meditation and practice daily.
